I’m not a good follower.
I was raised to be a leader and leader’s don’t follow very well. We’re a disappearing breed.
I received a sweet comment on a post from a follower. She said, “So grateful to be following you. Keep reminding us that simplicity is grace. #Unencumbered.” I admire her so much! I found her through a picture of a beat up Bible.
She doesn’t post very often, but when she does I drink it up. She explains by saying, “Committing to writing has always been an adventurous discipline for me. Forgive me for not posting as quickly as my experiences occur. I am ever so grateful for the way Life is treating me and faithfully attuned to how God stands in the gaps of my unknowing.”
Well said my darling! If I were to write about everything God is doing in my life, I’d be writing every minute of the day. After seeing her picture, I looked around for my Bible. It has a cover on it for protection, so I knew it wouldn’t looked like hers, but the cover has some scars.
The scars resemble the two scars I have on my left breast from my Breast Cancer Journey. Mine are not that long, but they’re there. Heck, I was there, but I was covered.
My first thought was to take the cover off and it would soon begin to look like hers, but the cover is there for protection from the elements. You used to be able to leave her a comment, but her most recent post has comments disabled. Protection from the elements.
My darling Miss A, I hope you continue to post because you’re one of my few true heroes!
God’s got you covered. And so do I.
